    OK since "Certainly Dook is Dook" has manned up, I shall cease using his comments from earlier in the season to throw back in ABC'r faces.

    But Ditto-Tard, Pack-O-Lips, Paula, Blew Dook, ToolSAC and the rest of you are still "fair game".

    Ha, not too good.

    I will be the first one to say how impressed I was with the Holes finish this season. They could have taken the 2010 route and just packed it in, but they continued to improve the rest of the season. They never really beat anyone big, but they competed.

    I will also say that I was impressed with the job that Huck did this year. I think Larry Naga was coach of the year, but this was one of Roy's better coaching jobs. Everyone seemed to improve as the year went on, everyone that mattered at least.

    UNC will be a beast to deal with next year if the team stays pretty much intact. Should be an exciting year, especially adding the new teams.

    I will eat the crow on this one.
